Truven Health Analytics is an IBM Watson Health Company that provides healthcare data and analytics services.[1] It provides information, analytic tools, benchmarks, research, and services to the healthcare industry, including hospitals, government agencies, employers, health plans, clinicians, pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies. Truven is a portmanteau of the words "trusted" and "proven".[2]

History

Thomson Healthcare was a division of Thomson Corporation until 2008, when, following Thomson's merger with Reuters, it became the healthcare unit of Thomson Reuters. On April 23, 2012, Thomson Reuters agreed to sell it to Veritas Capital for US$1.25 billion.[3] On June 6, 2012, the sale was finalized and the new company, Truven Health Analytics, became an independent organization solely focused on healthcare.[4]

IBM Corporation acquired Truven on February 18, 2016, and merged it with IBM's Watson Health unit.[5]
